It is my favorite time of year. I don't like dragging out all of the Christmas stuff out of storage but I do love the house decorated. I like to turn off all of the lights and just sit on the couch and watch tv in my chair with just the lights from the tree and the greenery. It's always a pain getting everything up and sometimes it's a bit "much" but isn't that what makes this time of year a little more fun? I admit with the radio stations starting Christmas music on Halloween ....that was a little too early but with the colder weather I'm finally in the mood. Last night I did my favorite thing too. I LOVE LOVE driving around and looking at the lights on the plaza. It was cold but we still walked around and looked at some of the display windows. It is just a special place that isn't just about the shopping. I had to laugh when Matthew and I were decorating.
Matthew: Mom, Something isn't right with the tree. It looks funny.
Me: Well Matthew, it doesn't have any ornaments on it yet.
Matthew: No mom. I know THAT (add sarcasm...don't know where he gets that from). It's missing the blanket thing.
Me: The what??
Matthew: You know, mom. The thing that keeps MY presents warm!
Me: Oh, you mean the tree skirt. (Trying SOOO hard not to laugh at him)
Matthew: Yeah...so our tree is a girl?
That was it...I lost it. Couldn't stop laughing!! LOL
